I just cringe when talking with someone around the topic of data backup and they say, “Oh yeah, I keep meaning to do that!” No more! You can keep meaning to clean the toilet or clean out your closet, but nothing TRULY devastating will happen if you don’t do those things. If you don’t back up your images though and your computer crashes, your camera gets stolen or you accidentally reformat everything… YOU WILL LOOSE ALL YOUR IMAGES! I don’t think I can say this enough. I have had so many clients talk about loosing photos and it makes me so sad because those are documented memories that you can’t get back! You have them in your brain, but you can’t pass them along to your children.

Anyways.. PLEASE, back up your images!

Here are few companies, I don’t endorse, but have worked with and like.



Apple Time Machine

Dropbox (you can set your phone to automatically back up to dropbox after you take a picture)

Google Drive

These are just a few I have liked and use. Let me know if you have any others! I love learning about new technology.

January is a great month to do some house keeping. It is a time to pull out that computer and start your albums from 2016 or maybe 2015 or maybe 2009! It doesn’t really matter, just as long as you are getting started. I always tell my husband that I would love for him to pay for a house keeper on Friday and take the kids away for the weekend so I can just work on albums! They are always the last thing that gets tackled and the first thing my children grab when they have to wait 15 minutes for their T.V. time to start in the morning.

Make a commitment to make one album a year. You will love it even more as time passes. They truly hold the treasures of our family memories. And if making them yourself with the digital files you purchased is too much, I would be HAPPY to make them. Just give me a shout!

In the meantime, check out Pinhole Press. They are a great photo company with a lot of fun printing ideas. Happy Day to you!

I want to first thank all my clients from 2016. It was a memorable year. I feel so honored to have such an intimate sneak peak into so many family’s lives.

I want to give you a little snippet over the next few weeks of 2016. This family is one I have known for a long time. I have photographed their boys since their first was a newborn. I just adore them and get excited to photograph them each year.

xo – Annie
